This election campaign should not be used to prove a theoretical argument about the sex of the women's vice-president. Such an argument would be proved or disproved on the day of the election.
I am offering responsible and efficient conduct of an important executive portfolio during 1970, and back this with proven experience and administrative ability, consistent attendance at executive meetings, and impartiality in the use of my executive vote, judging each issue on its merits.
Without wishing to impugn the motives of the other two candidates the era of the spare-time egoist, who is elected because nobody cares to pull their finger and stand against them, is over. Students can do without reassurances of "responsible" (and by implication "respectable") government. The SRC, at which they can represent themselves, is all that is necessary, except for administrative duties. There are those who think student politics stink—our candidatures are designed for them.
